A bit more progress the past few days....
Windshields in.
Were NOS frames but middle membrane had yellowed so I had to get new glass.

Stenciling was next on the list.
Always stressful...especially the big stuff like the hood star.
Had to get my wife to help me get it stuck down.

Progress!!

Looks great, Keith!  Stencils are a real pain in the ass!   >:(

Keep up the good work.  We seem to be updating our threads at similar intervals, lol.  ;D
